Now in our 20th year, gritLIT is an intimate festival that lets you get up close with your favourite authors (and discover new voices, too).

Welcome to the 2024 edition of gritLIT: Hamilton's Readers and Writers Festival!

Our in-person festival begins on Thursday, April 18, 2024 with an opening night event with Peter Mansbridge at the Playhouse Cinema on Sherman Avenue North at 7:00 PM. All other gritLIT events, from Friday April 19, 2024 to Sunday April 21, 2024 will be at the Homewood Suites by Hilton in downtown Hamilton.
